To really understand the Internet of Things (IoT) requires application, implementation, and execution in the real world. IEEE IoT recently launched a program to provide the IoT community an interactive platform on which to engage with use cases, service descriptions, business models, and reference implementations that will be key to developing a vibrant IoT industry. This is a fantastic opportunity for you to contribute to the IoT cause, as well as get excellent exposure for your projects and ideas.
Home Central Control
- ICT CityPulse
Sandra has just installed The Home Central Control (HCC) which provides the complete control of her house. It switches the lights automatically on when she enter and switches them off when you leave a room. Arriving home from work Sandras face is recognized at the entrance, and the electronic key in her pocket is detected. The HCC triggers the heating system, by combining data from outdoor and indoor temperature, weather forecast from the Internet, and user preferences. It adjusts the house energy consumption to the real needs of Sandra and her family, and most importantly it helps her save money. The HCC recognizes which appliances (washing machine, dishwasher, water heater, heating system, etc.) are turned on at a given time and synchronizes them to ensure the best energy efficiency, taking into account pricing structure of the utility companies.
